Bill Explanation 

Pre Pay Billing

Want one less thing to remember? Sign up for pre-pay billing and only get notices to pay when your initial deposit reaches $25 or less. To sign up call one of our member service representatives at (325) 793-8500.

Budget Billing

After just one year of membership, you can sign up for average billing and take the guess work out of your monthly bill. With average billing, we look at your usage history from the previous year and take an average amount. You then pay the same amount each month. To sign-up for budget billing, contact one of our member service representatives at (325) 793-8500.

Go Green: E-Billing

To get a discount of $5 per month, sign up for e-bill. You can also sign up for auto-pay by credit card, e-check or auto bank draft on the online payment site.
